All Day Gantan Sai
Shinto holyday marking a new year. Traditionally, Shinto practitioners observe this New Year holiday by visiting the shrines, mostly at midnight and praying for the renewal of their heart, prosperity and health in the year to come. It is also common to visit close friends and family to express good wishes. Much like Christmas for Christians, Gantan Sai has become a national holiday in Japan and expanded out past the Shinto religious practices. 
All Day Mary, Mother of God
The Solemnity of Mary the Holy Mother of God is a feast day within the Catholic Church, and is considered a “holy day of obligation,” meaning that Catholics are expected to attend Mass on this day. It is meant to commemorate the part played by Mary in the incarnation of Jesus, who Christians believe to be divine.
